Bug: Default setting of $doLogTopicView in TWiki.cfg breaks WebStatistics

Test case

  • Install TWiki with default settings
  • WebStatistics will have an empty View column

This started in the March 2001 beta, I think - the Dec 2000 version did have $doLogTopicView set to 1 by default, or at least logged views by default. I have only just realised that this was fixable using TWiki.cfg, having thought it was a bug so far...


TWiki version: March 2001 beta
TWiki plugins: various
Server OS: Linux
Web server: Apache
Perl version: 5.005_03
Client OS: Windows 2000
Web Browser: IE5

Fix record

Can we either:

  • Change the default $doLogTopicView to 1, so that WebStatistics works out of the box (preferable!)
  • Put in a comment on WebStatistics page or in installation notes, saying 'set $doLogTopicView to 1' to get stats to work; and also put a comment in TWiki.cfg.

$doLogTopicView actually is already set to 1 in Alpha for some time. I enabled now the other flags as well since disk space is inexpensive.
